“This is an age of ‘quick returns’, easy gains, least trouble, everything with as little effort and cost as possible. Depth is a lost stamina. Stamina is a minus quality. Who today would take the pains to read such classics on the Cross as Dr. Mabie’s The Divine Reason of the Cross and The Meaning and Message of the Cross? The super artificiality is coasting the Church and the Church and Christians very dearly, and so there is artificially life, artificial food, artificial fellowship, which will not go through in the time of testing” (T. Austin-Sparks).
